Weird Costumes Worn By Harley Quinn For Suicide Squad

During the time when the casts of the Suicide Squad are still unknown, many are already waiting for the announcement. When it was confirmed that Margot Robbie will be playing the role of Harley Quinn, a lot of the fans rejoiced over the news. The enthusiasm that was shown by the fans has resulted to hundreds of images online that were edited using software such as Photoshop. Each of these photos contains images of Robbie in different costumes. There are those that edited her to be wearing the jester suit while there are those that adapted the look from the Arkham Asylum. Due to those sample photos, many were excited to see the actual costumes on the film but the preview left them quite disappointed.

The only positive thing about it is that Margot Robbie’s aura is enough to make the costume look good. The color schemes used are perfect while the accessories she used are very much like the ones seen in the comic books. Overall, she has a stellar look. Though the fans have already accepted her look and the costume, they are still dreaming about what could be better alternative for Harley Quinn’s costume.

The fans received some good news then because the Comic-Con issue from the Entertainment Weekly published an article following an interview with the costume designer of the Suicide Squad movie, Kate Hawley. They were able to talk about the potential look of the character as well the themes that inspired the final costume used on the film.

According to a report published by Batman-News after having read the Comic-Con issue, Hawley revealed that her inspiration for the costumes of Harley were influenced by Mexican drug cartels posted on Instagram. She also took inspiration from various rock and roll legends such as Patti Smith, Debbie Harry and Courtney Love. The movie costumes of Joker played by Jared Leto also took inspiration from the drug lords showcased on Instagram. Hawley also revealed that she wanted the sex appeal of Harley to work on its own and not to center her outfit based on what will make Joker happy.


Interesting Facts About The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

If you’ve grown up during the 90s and the 2000s, then you probably know about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, or TMNT, has existed for over 32 years now and it has become one of the most popular fictional brands in the world. People definitely love these crime fighting humanoid turtles. Who wouldn’t love them? They’re turtles who mastered the art of Ninjutsu! TMNT isn’t just a popular franchise, it is actually a pop culture phenomenon and the names Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael aren’t just famous artists during the Renaissance, they’re also names of the four teenage mutant ninja turtles that had captured the hearts of kids worldwide.

Even with over three decades of existence, it would seem that TMNT isn’t ready to hit the shelves just yet. In fact, the franchise is actually getting bigger and bigger with another feature film being released this June.

Here are some interesting facts about the teenage mutant ninja turtles that you should definitely know about.

  1. TMNT started with a silly joke. True TMNT fans would know that the franchise began with a dumb joke one night while Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were both hanging out. Laird was so engrossed with the show he was watching on TV and Eastman wanted to give him a good laugh so he drew a turtle standing upright wearing a mask and carrying a nanchaku. Laird found it very funny and interesting so he began to draw his very own ninja turtle and the rest was history.
  2. The first TMNT picture was sold for $71,000. Unbelievable right? But it’s true. The picture that Eastman and Laird drew during the night they conceived TMNT was actually bought for $71 thousand but if you consider how successful the franchise is and what its worth, then that really is worth the price.
  3. Donnie was supposed to be named Bernini. All of the ninja turtles were named after famous Renaissance artists but originally, they were supposed to have Japanese names. However, Laird and Eastman both thought that they didn’t sound silly enough that is why they opted to use Italian Renaissance artist names instead. Donnie was supposed to be named after Gian Lorenzo Bernini, an Italian artist and architect. But they opted to go with Donatello instead so that they’d have another name that ends with ‘o’.
